Good but would love some new perspectives

I would love to have this show shaken up - this is still very Euro-centric / white history or the white take on history. The hosts have been great for many years, but honestly I would really like some diversity. It would be great if there were POC hosting/researching this show moving forward to offer a different view point & probably some different topics. Don’t get me wrong, love all the work these ladies have put in over the years but it’s a very, very white podcast.

Love the show, love the hosts

To the person who suggested the show needs new hosts - that would be a different show! The hosts are this show. I don’t listen because I love history - I listen because I love Holly and Tracy. A POC-perspective history show would be amazing - please go make that show! And Tracy and Holly, please keep making Stuff You Missed in History Class. You ladies are wonderful and caring and put so much thought into what you do.
